Virtual Conference – The Past, Present, and Future of Human Migrations

Thursday 26 – Friday 27 September 2024, online (USA)


Southern New Hampshire University’s Social Science and Liberal Arts departments invite students, faculty, independent researchers, and scholars around the world to our virtual conference on “The Past, Present, and Future of Human Migrations,” which will take place on September 26 and 27, 2024. 

This conference series launched in 2023 with a spirited discussion of nation-building and diverse perspectives on the evolution and future of the nation state. In 2024 we will explore the movement of people in all its forms and motivations – pursuing food and other resources or escaping from climate change and conflict – and the social, cultural, political, economic, and environmental consequences of those migrations. Within this broader theme, we encourage the discussion of: 

  • The environmental impacts of migration
  • Diplomacy and international relations
  • The movement of capital and labor
  • Art as a record and vehicle of human migration
  • Refugees and nomadic, displaced, or stateless persons
  • Linguistic diversity and justice
  • Legal and extra-legal migration
  • The pursuit of resources
  • Fiction and non-fiction accounts of human migration
  • Immigration, emigration, and national sovereignty
  • Exploration and contact
  • Conflicts arising from migration
  • Communication as a catalyst for human movement 

We hope to advance deeper understanding of complex issues surrounding human migration in the past and present, along with predictions about the future. Presenters will use diverse sources and methods to study the historical legacies and modern challenges of migration for all places and people.
